5 charged in stabbing death of Kalama, Wash., manDecember 20, 2013 @ 5:52 pm
TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - Pierce County prosecutors have charged four men and a woman in last month's stabbing death of a 27-year-old Kalama, Wash., man in Tacoma.
The News Tribune reports ( http://is.gd/KyGuPc) that prosecutors allege the four men _ and the victim _ had ties to a white supremacist prison gang. In court papers, prosecutors say the defendants were angry with Derek Wagner for dating the wife of a member and associating with a rival gang.
Not guilty pleas were entered Friday on behalf of all five defendants. They were charged with second-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Wagner's body was found Nov. 17 in a Tacoma yard.
